By far the best steak I have ever had. The cream corn and lobster mac n cheese are both as good as advertised. The fried green tomatoes was an excellent appetizer. The service is top notch. Everything was absolutely perfect.

I went to Halls to celebrate my husband's birthday. From the time we walked into the door, the owner greeted us warmly and gave us pure southern hospitality. When we walked upstairs after being seated the wait staff was phenomenal. Even though they were very busy and very crowded the wait staff ensured that we received personal service and attention. The food was excellent and the drink I had which was a hot pepper Martini was one of the best drinks that I've ever experienced. I consider myself a food Aficionado as I've traveled lots of places, but this place hands down gave me a service to remember and ensured that I will keep coming back.

Excellent staff. Great food.

I did not care for the decor. I was happy with where we sat, but there were other areas of the dining room that I knew would be a terrible place to be seated.

We went for the food, and it did not disappoint.

We dined here while visiting Charleston for our anniversary. Overall it was very good. The service was very very good although our waiter was very chatty. He was very knowledgeable. We split a wet age NY strip, baked potato, creamed Spinach and creamed corn. Also we had the chopped salad. All the food was really good except the main dish, the steak, which is what we went to Halls for to begin with. We should have gotten the dry age and not sure why they don’t just dry age all of the steaks. Our steak was very chewy and just so so given the high end restaurant and steak house. The steak rated a 6 out of 10. The other dishes rated a 10. The service was a 10. And for our anniversary they gave us prosecco and a dessert. That was real nice. So overall we liked the restaurant but wish the steak was the best ever. It was not memorable. We would give Halls another shot but not get the wet age steaks.

this Has to be the best steakhouse in the country. We have gone to the best in many cities and have never seen an equal.
The service is always as good as the food. Attention to detail seems to be their goal that they achieve with ease

Our dining experience was less than what we expected. We had heard only good things about this restaurant and were really looking forward to celebrating my daughter's birthday dinner there. Our waiter was not the most friendly and a bit impatient with us while trying to decide our drink order. As for dinner, He described the temperature of a Medium prepared filet as having a HOT pink center, so I went with Medium well. That was a bad decision. My daughter had ordered a lobster tail because they do not offer any Chicken entrees. It wasn't until the end of the meal that I noticed she hadn't received drawn butter! I don't know if that's the usual way they serve it, but I can't imagine lobster without it!

Fine dining at it’s best! Probably one of the best steaks I have ever had. Was a bit pricey but worth every penny. Waitstaff was polite and attentive. Our server, Valerie, was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Over all a great dining experience.

My wife and I celebrated our 25th anniversary at Halls Chop House in Charleston. We both ordered steaks -New York strip and Filet Mignon... Best we’ve ever had. Cooked to perfection and not salty like most other restaurants that serve steak. The portions were huge! The Simple Greens salad and panchetta roasted Brussels sprouts were also delicious as was the caramel cake. We were greeted promptly when we arrived. Everyone was friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. Highly recommend this restaurant for great food and service!

Both our meals and the service were outstanding. The only reason we will not return is because it's a bit pricey and not in our usual price range for dining out. The meal was a gift to us and we certainly enjoyed it. But if you can afford it, you should have a great experience!

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Billy Hall, the owner, and it made to feel as welcome as possible. Our seating was fantastic in the side dining room. Billy brought us complimentary champagne for my girlfriends birthday and was constantly checking on us throughout the meal. The service was second to none as the staff was right there for any request. The food is impeccable and of the highest quality. I would recommend Halls to everyone. A truly spectacular culinary experience.

I screwed up the date for my reservation but they still found us a table and then proceeded to knock it out of the park service-wise. I cannot recall ever being treated so nicely anywhere I have ever been. It was a magical experience from the moment we walked through the door.

Have been to Halls many times and each time the service seems to get worse and worse . Food is great but very overpriced compared to some other steakhouse restaurants in the area that in my opinion are just as good. Mr. Hall himself is there on occasion and greets people at the door . When I went to talk to him when leaving to tell him about the issues we had with our service he was very rude and said he didn’t need our business because his restaurant is the best in town and to try and find somewhere better! A very pompous response ! You couldn’t pay me to eat there again. Dinner for 3 and $800 later and he could care less if you had a great experience or not. Won’t be back!
